What’s your passion? What makes you feel most alive?
I love creating nourishing food for people to enjoy that is satisfying, delicious and beautiful.
Where do you live, and what do you love about your home/hometown?
Los Angeles, CA. I’m a third generation Angeleno, and I love the history in this town, and the beach of course!
You’re an expert—that’s why we’re interviewing you. Tell us about your wellness journey and credentials.
I began healing through food in 2014 and never looked back. I removed grains, refined sugar and dairy from my diet to heal from an autoimmune disease. I began Sweet Laurel along the way with my creative partner, Claire Thomas, and the rest is history!
What inspired you to pursue your area of expertise?
When I saw how nourishing and delicious grain free, refined sugar free and dairy free food could be–I had to share it!
Drop us with some knowledge. What’s the one fact, insight, or story about your area of expertise you’d like to share?

Is there a wellness myth you can bust for us?
Gluten Free does not mean it is healthy. Oftentimes it is filled with other gums, fillers and sugar you don’t want! That is what Sweet Laurel does differently - gluten free that is healthy, too. It is truly the feel good option.
